A Movie Lover's Search for Romance
Joanna Charnas recounts 15 years of her postdivorce life in middle age. In the first section, Charnas summarizes her many dates and crushes and—one has to hand it to her—doesn’t trash a one of them. Imagine the author writing a diary before and after each date. The intriguing premise includes the interweaving of specific movies that tie into the emotions and actions of each date. Charnas is a knowledgeable movie buff who consistently compares her experiences to relevant films (e.g., Coming Home, Pretty Woman, When Harry Met Sally). But that is not all. The author gleans knowledge only born of experience when she reports of lessons learned: for example, back away from confused men, trust your instincts, and have faith that you’re never too old or too anything to have wonderful romantic experiences.

Our Wisdom Years
Psychologist Charles Garfield asserts in OUR WISDOM YEARS: Growing Older with Joy, Fulfillment, Resilience, and No Regrets, the later years are not defined by success and self-mastery like they are for young adults. Rather, those entering their sixties find that, instead of anxiously asking, “Do I have what it takes to compete?” they find themselves wondering, “Do I have what it takes to lead a fulfilling life?” As the founder of The Shanti Project, an internationally honored volunteer organization dedicated to the care of the dying, Garfield is very well acquainted with this shift from “success thinking” to “legacy thinking.” In the later years, the drive to keep accomplishing is usually less pressing than the desire to nurture loving relationships and to contribute something that will live on.

Six Funerals and a Wedding
Mary Odgers is the author of the new book Six Funerals and a Wedding. The story teaches the reader how it is possible to survive devastation beyond measure, to find happiness when your heart is broken beyond recognition, to pursue a new direction when your life plan has been derailed, and to even find love again when it might seem impossible. Six Funerals and a Wedding is an unconventional memoir that invites us into the markedly different stories of the treasured entities Mary loved and lost, the raw and varied nuances that grief holds, and the unexpected love story that sparked a new chapter—all with profound honesty, and with an ever-present undercurrent of hope that reminds us that evolution is possible through loss, that life can go on and be beautiful, and how remarkably resilient the human spirit can be.

Dr. Smith is the author of Reversing Alzheimer's: How to Prevent Dementia and Revitalize Your Brain. The book shows that in the last seventeen years, our scientific understanding of how the brain works has seen exponential growth. We have discovered that our brains possess the fantastic ability to grow new neurons from stem cells as needed and can rapidly change their structure and function in response to environment and experience. We also now realize that Alzheimer’s disease is caused by multiple metabolic disruptions. This new understanding has catapulted us into a dramatically different mindset. Dr. Smith reveals what causes Alzheimer’s and what we need to do to reverse it. It shows that dementia is caused by a broken metabolism and can be reversed by applying a multi causal, molecular medicine approach, which is based on the most up-to-date peer-reviewed published scientific research as well as mainstream, alternative, complementary, functional, and naturopathic medical models.

How love transforms challenges and obstacles
Maggie Kast has been a writer since the 1990's. In her book, Side by Side but Never Face to Face, she writes about Greta, her narrator, who has been wrenched from a long and tightly-circled marriage to Manfred, an Austrian Holocaust survivor.

Together they mourned the accidental death of a daughter and experienced a widening of spiritual horizons as they grieved. Today Maggie discusses coping with the pain of losing a daughter and the challenges of having a son with a developmental disability, including the stigma of his being labeled “retarded,” her journey to convert to catholicism, what drew her to the Hmong people of Vietnam and insight from her research into their unique culture, and her views on psychotherapy and philosophy.
